Sweet rocket, Hesperis matronalis … I hope to have masses of it this summer. Is the seed best sown under cover, or direct in mid Spring?



Try direct, they are just germinating in my garden now. if you have plenty of seed save some and sow it in pots in the late summer. They wont flower this year in my experience.

If you'd like some plants I have plenty I can lift for you.

Wow! Eileen, thank you so much … a few would be wonderful. I’ll have a think about what I can offer as a swap …
